January 3 proved to be a historical day for Ripple. The crypto became the only currency after bitcoin to have a market cap of over $100 billion. At the time of writing, the valuation of Ripple is ~$121 billion.

$19 Billion Surge In 24 Hours:

Ripple’s native token, XRP, went up by more than 24 %, taking the coins value to $3. The huge value surge saw the valuation of ripple go from $95 billion to $116. As a result, Ripple further distanced itself from the third top cryptocurrency, Ethereum, and solidified its spot as the second most valuable crypto after bitcoin.

 

The daily trading volume of XRP is vigorously amassed in the South Korean market. Korbit and Bithumb are handling 40 percent of worldwide Ripple exchanges, representing more than $2.2 billion of Ripple’s daily trading volume.

 

On Bithumb, the second biggest digital money exchanging platform on the planet situated in Seoul, South Korea, Ripple stays as the most exchanged crypto, recording daily trading volume that is three times bigger than that of bitcoin.

 

Despite being the biggest and most liquid Ripple trade market, XRP is being exchanged with a high premium inside South Korean digital money market. On Bithumb and Korbit, Ripple is being traded at $3.5, with a 12 percent premium.

 

Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO at Ripple, and responsible for the advancement of the Ripple blockchain network, expressed that the “genuine use case” separates Ripple from other computerized assets.

 

However, as with any other digital money, Ripple met with some criticism. On January 3, P4man expressed that the vision of Ripple to develop into Swift 2.0 isn’t reasonable because for Ripple to become a Swift-like network, banks will need to pick up control over it.

“As for the moonshot of replacing Swift; most importantly, I have doubts over a worldwide agreement protocol being the correct approach. Banks presently control Swift. How likely is it they would give up control to a little startup and allow themselves to become indebted to its private currency, that they have no need for?” wrote P4man for Coindesk.
